Thank you for finding us! We are Christa and Del and we live here with our two dogs, Milka and Alpi

I, Christa, and my family on my mothers side, are from the Alps. A stunning region called 'Allgaeu' on the German / Austrian border, so I have half grown up in the mountains. I'm sort of part mountain goat! Del grew up in Bristol and happily shares a love of all things Alpine.

Our influence and passion has always been in chalet style, interiors and clothing having had two shops in Bath specialising in items made in the Alps. We used to own Hansel und Gretel, Shop and Strudel Bar, opened in 1991. In 2006, we opened a clothing shop, 'uber', for men and women, also in Bath.

We left our shop life in Bath in 2011 after twelve years of thinking and dreaming about our wish to combine all of our loves in one place with a bespoke accommodation and little shop. It was an "either we do it now or we stop talking about it" moment. We dreamt of a more Alpine location and after a year and a half of searching, Singdean found us.

We moved into this beautiful old building in 2012 which had not much but a lovely feeling. We started the one room getaway shortly after. Then came 'DASALPi', our Alpine lifestyle shop. And then in 2017, we started building Alpnhaus, the chalet. Which we completed in May, 2018.

We are very happy to call Singdean home and hope that you, as many of our guests have found, feel the same enchantment as we do.

Hope to welcome you here soon, Christa and Del x
